Saks To Open Calgary Store

Saks Fifth Avenue plans to open its third Canadian location, in Calgary, Alberta.

Expected to open in January 2018, the 115,000-square-foot, two-level location will be part of the Chinook Centre, a Cadillac Fairview property. The new store will feature a merchandise assortment including women’s designer, contemporary, modern ready-to-wear, men’s, beauty, jewelry, shoes and handbags. In addition to its elevated assortment, the new location will offer a full service Fifth Avenue Club, complete with private suites and personal shopping consultants.

“Following our successful entry into Canada earlier this year, we are excited to bring Saks Fifth Avenue to western Canada in 2018. Our strategy is to opportunistically open new stores where we have the customer, the right location and we are able to deliver a consistent Saks brand edit, focused on modern fashion. Calgary, specifically the Chinook Centre, fits these criteria and is a logical next step in our Canadian expansion,” said Marc Metrick, president, Saks Fifth Avenue.

Saks Fifth Avenue opened two full-line stores in February at Toronto Eaton Centre and Sherway Gardens. The retailer operates 40 full-line stores in 22 states and Canada, and five international licensed stores.
